Gungrave challenges gamers to kick some serious butt as Grave, a long-dead assassin sent back to earth to annihilate seemingly endless legions of merciless enemies. Players battle their way through massive, destructible areas in over-the-top anime-inspired action, earning insane special attacks and otherworldly power-ups as they embark on a mission of revenge and devastation. Featruing destructible environments, hordes of relentless foes and stunning art by anime legend Yasuhiro Naito, Gungrave is equal parts stylish anime thriller, Hollywood blockbster and heart-pounding action game. Prepare to be blown away.
Gungrave casts you in the role of Grave, a long-dead assassin sent to annihilate a mysterious criminal organization. The tools at your disposal: a gun in each hand and a coffin full of hardware strapped to your back. Gungrave features an intuitive control system that lets you perform a variety of graceful moves, all while unloading more bullets than in a John Woo flick.
You'll lead Grave through huge environments ranging from the bowels of the criminal underworld to graceful towers stretching toward heaven, all filled with relentless foes and insane power-ups. In these stages, there's no such thing as window dressing--everything you see on the screen can be perforated with your firearms. This includes the myriad enemies and boss characters foolish enough to stand in front of your gun barrels. If simply shooting your enemies isn't enough, there are devastating special attacks to unleash and secrets to be found.
Top Customer Reviews
If Gungrave is anything, it's stylish. From heavily stylized CG cel-shaded cutscenes, to the... logo at the beginning of each level (I kid you not - though this will probably be hit by the censors), everything in Gungrave oozes 1.) style and 2.) a sense that you must shoot everything on screen.
The controls are a little strange - Beyond the Grave walks at a snail's pace. You can make him move faster by running, or by clicking down on the stick, but his basic movement is *extremely* slow. This is again, probably a stylistic choice, as BtG isn't supposed to be a super-fast action hero - he's Death incarnate, and it would seem Death is content to take his time.
The graphics are, again, heavily stylized, and textures on everything retain a look like they were stripped out of an anime. There's a lot of explosions, some neat effects, and a bit of slowdown.
The biggest problem in this game is that there simply isn't much to do. As satisfying as it is to mow down enemy after enemy, it gets tiring after a few hours - either fortunately, or unfortunately, the game as a whole only lasts about this long. While the combo system and unlocking demolition shots gives it some semblance of replay value, the game itself isn't really complex enough to warrant playing it over and over. As fun as it is, just be warned, it's short.
So, if you're looking to blow off some steam, and destroy everything in sight, Gungrave's certainly an option to consider. Just be wary that the experience is brief, but intense.
I would recommend watching the show first (DVD volume 1 is out in america right now, but its available through fansub if you can find it.), and then playing the game.
